What is a frozen hot chocolate exactly? Just as the name states, these tempting treats are created using a hot cocoa mix, but instead of preparing it hot, it is prepared frozen. After a long day at school, these are fun to create for those special kids in your life.


preparation time
10 mins

cook time




3 tablespoons sugar granulated

1 package hot cocoa mix (about 3 tablespoons)

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

0.33 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

0.33 cup white chocolate chips

12 ounces evaporated milk divided

4 cup ice


Step 1

Combine sugar, cocoa mix, and butter in the top of a double boiler that is set over gently boiling water. Stir often until melted and a smooth paste forms. Add semi-sweet & white chocolate chips; stir. When chips begin to melt, slowly stir in 1/2 cup of evaporated milk. Stir until smooth. Cool to room temperature.

Step 2

Combine the chocolate base mixture, the remaining evaporated milk and ice in a blender (you can do this in batches) and cover. Blend until smooth. Pour into frosty glasses. Top each with whipped cream. Sprinkle with additional chopped chocolate chips or mini marshmallows, if desired.
